The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced Tuesday a program that aims sharing battlefield information at multiple levels of security classification through a single handheld device. Dubbed ‘Secure Handhelds on Assured Resilient networks at the tactical Edge (SHARE), this program uses a resilient secure network that links devices without needing to route traffic through secure data centers, the official release dated January 10 said
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has completed first phase of program developing temporary underwater fiber-optics communications networks to ensure connectivity when tactical networks are unavailable. DARPAs Tactical Undersea Network Architecture (TUNA) program recently completed its initial phase, developing concepts and technologies aimed at restoring connectivity for US forces when traditional tactical networks are knocked offline or otherwise unavailable, the agency announced Thursday
Finnish Defence Forces have demonstrated the High Data Rate Waveform (HDRWF) developed in the European ESSOR programme (European Secure Software defined Radio) in battlefield conditions and with a 15 radio node configuration. The activity was carried out using three different radio platforms from the three participating ESSOR Companies – Bittium, Leonardo and Thales, to demonstrate how the land forces of different European countries can communicate seamlessly with each other in joint operations, linking up via a common waveform regardless of the radio platforms they use
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is exploring a new fundamental approach, ‘A Mechanically Based Antenna (AMEBA) program, to make underwater wireless communication and data transfer a possibility. With this newly announced AMEBA effort, program manager Troy Olsson of DARPAs Microsystems Technology Office is betting on a little-exploited aspect of electromagnetic physics that could expand wireless communication and data transfer into undersea, underground, and other settings where such capabilities essentially have been absent, DARPA stated in a press release
Elbit Systems has unveiled GroundEye, a line of systems for ground-based wide-area, focused and persistent surveillance at the Israel HLS & Cyber Conference, taking place this week in Tel Aviv.

Raytheon is developing new technologies to allow the next generation of manned and unmanned flying vehicles to communicate seamlessly, even in hostile environments. Under two contracts totaling $9 million, Raytheon will deliver new networking solutions as part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization program, or DyNAMO, the company said in a statement Monday
Leonardo-Finmeccanica will provide the latest Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) technology for Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF). The deal, signed with a Japanese prime contractor, will see Leonardo supplying its SIT-422/5J interrogator for the JGSDF
Russian equipment is likely to be made available for Egypts Mistral-class helicopter carriers delivered by France. "It is likely that since the deal [on the Mistral delivery] between Egypt and France has been signed and the warship delivery is ongoing, with one [warship] already there and the other one arriving a little bit later, the decision [on the supply of Russian equipment] will be made, the equipment must work," Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Igor Sevastyanov was quoted as saying by
General Dynamics has delivered 30 new two-channel Manpack networking radios to the US Army for evaluation. The digital radios are the first to be delivered by General Dynamics under the Army's production contract awarded in March, the company said in a statement Thursday
Elbit Systems announced today that it was awarded contracts from a European country, for the supply of advanced tactical communications systems, for a total amount of an approximately $40 million. The contracts will be performed over a one-year period
